View.adtmt.com is eating up my users internet usage.  When I ip trace it, it tells my Microsoft.  I doubt it.  There have not been any posts about this for some time and never really saw a solution that worked.  I even went to block it on my sonicwall and notice adtmt.com is already blocked.  Very strange.  I am going to try blocking "view.adtmt.com" exactly as it appears in my usage watcher software.  Does any one have any new info on this bugger.

First solution a no go, hijack this a no go.  Trying malwarebytes now, also trying the in IE to open the tools menu, then options, then privacy tab, then listing the view.atdmt.com in blocked area.  Please stand by.

Wow, this was a bugger.  Spyware/Malware no worky.  Adding atdmt.com to my Sonicwall exclusion list did not work.  Adding atdmt.com to the Privacy/Sites button in IE in the BLOCK section did not work.

What did work?  All of the above plus the simple stuff including:  Disk Clean up utility from C:\,  Deleting all cookies and history through IE tools.  Then going to the Temp folder in windows and cleaning that out leaving only the index.dat file and a few others I knew what they were.  Then doing a search of the registry.  Most registries were fine but a few infected pc's had an atdmt listing.  But not many.

With all that, at least for a few hours now, no sign of this very active cookie.
